IVe been doing LC for about 10 yrs sick of the $12 hr so Im contemplating going on my own problably partime next yr but maybe the next yr make the transition to fulltime. I have a few 21"incher jobs now. I want to stay solo but I wonder since the mowing season is so short in Mn I wonder if i can make any real money. Im thinking of about $35-40 hr for mowing. I know I have cleanups but I dont think the profit is a great there cause its labor intesive. Theres' edging and pruning but one man can only do so much especially since the growing season is so short Winters havent produced much snow either. can i make some real $$ ?????
